Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This week, Dave welcomes prominent filmmaker, author, and scholar Dinesh D’Souza to the show to discuss Dinesh’s new film, “Trump Card: Beating Socialism, Corruption and the Deep State.” Released less than a week ago, Trump Card is already #1 on Amazon as well as iTunes. Dave and Dinesh begin by discussing the steady erosion of freedom of thought and speech that Dinesh eloquently noted in his 1991 book, “Illiberal Education” and which he spoke about at length in a special Firing Line Debate, hosted by William F. Buckley, Jr., that same year. But the conversation focuses primarily on Mr. D’Souza’s new film and how he takes the viewer with him to research and interview key people in today’s political divide. A popular speaking on College Campuses across the country, Dinesh explains in detail the pathologies and methods of those attempting to remake America.
Then Dave settles in for a fun and informative chat with Ricochet member Jenna Stocker, whose recent article, “America Needs Its Cowboys,” provides a much needed reminder of the sort iconic heroes and role models who helped build a nation, and whose example can illuminate the path out of the anarchy and chaos afflicting so much of the nation today.
